Jean Kerr Stenmark and Virginia Thompson are innovative educators and curriculum developers. Virginia Thompson founded the FAMILY MATH program at The Lawrence Hall of Science.Review:
FAMILY MATH is what it claims, a guide for parents and children to work together not on passive tasks of rote learning but in active game play, solving problems, experimenting and even discovering. The tools are many but familiar: cups and playing cards and beans, paper and pencil and scissors, for some a watch with a second hand, and a $5 calculator. What to do is neatly shown in the 100 or more math activities that are laid out in this cheerfully illustrated, informal book. High aims include the growth of confidence no less than skill and a glimpse at how careers open in this world with math. This is a curriculum for informal math education, so badly needed. -- Excerpts from Scientific American, December, 1989.
